Filipinos are truly selfie addicts. That’s why the new Lenovo Vibe S1 smartphone with two front cameras will surely become a hit in the country.

This setup allows the users to take ‘creative selfies’ according to Lenovo. There’s the bokeh effect, refocus after the image has been shot and even removing unwanted people or things.

The Lenovo Vibe S1 has 5-inch 1080p display and comes with Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box. Of course, there’s the Lenovo Vibe UI on top of that.

Aside from the dual front camera, the Lenovo Vibe S1 also has a 13MP rear camera with an LED flash. Still, the dual front camera is more interesting.
